Spoken Word Episode 5: Women Of Banyule and Beyond Spoken Word Event

On this week’s show were joined by the phenomenal, powerhouse performer, poet, activist and convener Fleassy Malay, as we discussed her work, her life and running Mother Tongue for ten years. Coming up for International Women’s Day, Fleassy is running a very important tenth anniversary gala for Mother Tongue.

We spoke about the event and so much more. Language warning in this podcast, as Fleassy’s poems are very raw.
